Nope, not the same thing. Cherry Bomb and cherry peppers are Capsicum anuum just like jalapenos, bell peppers, cayennes etc.

Capsicum pubescense (generic names: rocoto, locoto) are not commercially grown in the US (AFAIK) so about the only way you'll find them for sale is from small seed companies (a.k.a. some guy) that grow their own.
